We’ll buy a vehicle in UK on your behalf (or someone else’ behalf), and ship it to you internationally

For most International Clients, it can be difficult to negotiate, purchase, and ship a vehicle that is located in the UK, from overseas. Car Exporters UK offers you a solution that will give you peace of mind as well as convenience (especially because of the alarming rise in the number of buyers based outside the UK, being defrauded by criminals who pretend to sell cars on popular car websites)
This service is ideal if you locate your own vehicle through another dealership or another car website, a private UK seller, or if you locate a car in the UK by any other means. As your agent, we will negotiate on your behalf, conduct background checks, inspect the vehicle before purchase, collect it and deliver to the UK port of departure, and arrange for shipping of the car from the UK to your country.

Don't be a victim of UK car scams

Once you send your money to them, they disappear and there is absolutely nothing that the police can do to assist you, since you are not a UK resident. We offer overseas clients this bespoke service to prevent you from being defrauded, or buying worthless cars sold by rogue car dealers who don't inform you of defects until the vehicle arrives in your country.

The full report will be available to you once we recommend that you proceed with the purchase, and you pay the service-charge, to give you as much details as possible before you commit to the purchase.

5) We will go to the seller and inspect the vehicle for any noticeable mechanical issues and cosmetic damages, and send you high quality photos and walk-through video for your consideration (please note this will be a check to verify that the vehicle is in a good mechanical and cosmetic condition as described by the seller I.e. to check that you are getting what you bargained for. If you require a detailed mechanical and engine inspection, we can quote you separately for that)
